Former MP for Dundee
All MPs could vote remotely through an online voting tool. Votes cast remotely are shown as normal on the TheyWorkForYou voting record.
The option of online voting was removed, and a number of MPs may have been unable to vote because they were not physically able to attend.
The requirements on proxy voting were relaxed, allowing MPs to designate another MP to cast a vote on their behalf.
If an MP votes by proxy, it is effectively exactly the same as if they cast the vote in person and it shows up on their TheyWorkForYou voting record.
MPs are not required to designate a proxy, and may instead pair with an opposing MP to miss a vote. Parliament does not record when two MPs have come to a pairing arrangement, so on TheyWorkForYou, they will both appear to have been absent for the vote.
We will update this information if the situation changes. See more detail on votes during the COVID-19 period here.
1. asked the Minister of Labour if she will consider the advisability of providing a scheme for the encouragement of the existing apprenticeship system to supersede the present system of training centres?
12. asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if, in view of the fact that a large number of persons who have resided in this country for many years are prevented from applying for certificates of naturalisation because of the cost involved, he will consider the advisability of reducing the charges in such cases?
30. asked the Minister of Health if, in view of the increasing practice on the part of public assistance committees to require unemployed applicants for relief to perform, as a condition of receiving such relief, work which should be done in the normal way at trade union rates of wages, he will take steps to bring this practice to an end?
